...Not an excuse for my behavior...
uite the contrary, Matt. It is a very valid excuse, and I think anyone here who has experienced the crazy nightmarish mind-ƒüçk of high-dose steroids will understand.I
was put on an emergency pack last summer along with Ambien (sleeping pills) for a severe allergic reaction. The Ambien was prescribed since steroids can make you run nonstop like a locomotive. What a complete whack-job it turned me into! My partner stopped me from stepping outside with the car keys in my underwear at 3 in the morning looking for ice cream (in a little river town where everything closes at 9). I felt bloated and was convinced that I looked like Governor Christie even though I'm a slender 145 lbs. I even waddled when I walked as if I had to. I tried to pick a fight with a bear of a guy who was twice my size because he almost hit me with his pickup truck in a parking lot - and I'm the biggest pacifist sissy wimp around. Nothing was normal - not even the little metal sculpture in the hallway that suddenly started laughing at my partner when he got mad at me for trying to get ice cream in my undies.D
espite being here and dealing like everyone else, I'm still the sanest person I know. But I'll never forget the strange trip I took on those steroids. I think you'll find the group here pretty understanding.
